Legere reeds are made from a special polymer compound with a very fine microtexture. They have low density, so that they float, just like cane reeds.
This hi-tec material is designed to mimic the properties of damp cane as closely as possible. The lifespan of these synthetic style reeds can be reportedly months and make a great, consistent sound.
The Signature Cut Legere has a thinner tip than the Classic model with a view to being more flexible and agile in articulationg. It is a thinner overall profile so take care to ensure your ligature securely holds the reed down.
In terms of strength the 2.5 and 3 are similar to a Vandoren V12 in the equivalent strengths (ie Softer than a blue box Vandoren). The 2.75 is between a blue box Vandoren 2.5 and 3 - a comonly requested strength.

I found it difficult to play at first, but now I\'m getting in to it I\'m really enjoying the improved tone.
I\'m playing a Yamaha YCL 450, with a Van Doren V5R Lyre mouthpiece. It\'s much easier to play than the 4C that came with the instrument.
I really like this reed. It\'s the right strength for me (I was using Rico Royal 2.5) and I like the clear tone it gives. It\'s much more simple to have a synthetic reed that doesn\'t react to humidity or become waterlogged.
Great product. Easier than cane reefs and more reliable
I love these reeds, a nice change from cane.
Never tried a synthetic reed before and only a clarinet learner but love the difference it makes in the tone.
